Alan Freeman - Wants 22/7/2019


One of my aims in life is to try and hear everything that is supposed to be good! That is in the world of prog/experimental/weird music. I wonder if I'm getting there? This list regularly shrinks and grows, and is constantly changing. As always, I welcome suggestions. i.e. anything new that I should know? Before suggesting older stuff, check my collection & other lists on this site, as I may already know it! But, you never know, I'm still amazed by some things I missed!

Excepting any listed as "Original CD's wanted of these..." I'm not after actual releases unless cheap! There are very few things that I actually want/need for myself. Generally I'm researching, clutching at straws, looking for odd missing items needed for projects. As much of this stuff is liable to be of little or no interest to us, some is sure to be rubbish, a recording/copy is usually adequate. I'm usually just interested in hearing the items below, as a download or CDR copy, and/or we can barter/swap. I like to remaster LP transcriptions to achieve CD quality in my archive, so please do not offer me scratchy vinyl rips, nor ones that are low bandwidth or not transferred directly, and especially not ones with jumps or bits of tracks missing. EX+ vinyl or better please!

Are you looking for something? Searching in vain? Why not email me: with your wants list? I have a huge archive. We may be able to come to a swap arrangement! I can swap physical CDRs, or online via flac or mp3. Or you can buy.

[r#######] = Discogs reference (paste into Discogs search bar)
items in bold green = new additions. other bits in red = specific tracks needed
items crossed out have been located (and only remain here for my future reference)

French research: 1970/80s acts of possible interest and/or need to hear...

Osidarta - SPIRIT CIRCLES, LP Le Kiosque D'Orphée 000.424 (1980) - reputedly excellent cosmic synth


Rhea - MIDI ET QUART, LP Le Kiosque D'Orphée 80.0603 (1980) -

Rhea - TENDANCES HOMICIDES, LP Le Kiosque D'Orphée 830402 (1983)

Rhea - A L'INTERIEUR DU VIDE, LP private 54139 (1990) unknown prog

Abramose ‎- ABRAMOSE, LP private 808 (1975) [r1936205] curious looking. Different artist to single?

Agartha -  Fini Pour Toi / Jacky Et Freddy, 7" private (1982) reputedly prog - 30secs at rockfrancais/sons/agarthafini.mp3 - sounds like a funky Hackett with a bad drummer and punky female vocals, so not very promising!

Aiguade - CHANSONS DES TEMPS FIGÉS, LP Baccara International BI 001 732 (1976) prog-folk?

Amalgame - LES BILLARDS VERTS, LP private AMA 30 CM 1 (1979) Apparently more Memoriance or Ange vein

Ananke - Veprabilly/C'ui Qui L'dit Qui Y'est - almost unanimously listed as jazz-rock! Musea: Quatuor de Dijon, ANANKE produit un jazz-rock technique, virtuose et teinté d'humour. Le 45 tours "Veprabilly/C'ui Qui L'Dit Qui Y Est" (1982) peut évoquer les oeuvres de Frank ZAPPA ou ZAO, tout en empruntant à Albert MARCOEUR et ETRON FOU LELOUBLAN leur fantaisie et leur goût du pastiche. It also gets listed in the French punk discography!

Roger Bellon - ROGER BELLON (RCA Victor ) 1977 - Balance series jazz-rock with Magma connections, unexciting based on: - other track added on YT is much more interesting akin to Clivage gone jazzy

Pascal Chassin - La Nouvelle Européenne / Don Juan 80, 7" Ballon Noir ‎BAL 45004 - rubbish funky new wave band is almost Komintern!

Claude Demet - HORDE, LP Crypto ZAL 6404 (1982) heavy rock trio? doubt it'll be of interest.

Giani Esposito - BOUDDHA - MÉDITATIONS, LP PES 301031 (1971) looks curious, with Serge Franklin

Alain Markusfeld - L'Epave / La Croix De Modez ‎(7", Single) Barclay 61.532 L 1972 need B Side

Alain Markusfeld - Le Gluemour / Le Requin Central ‎(7", Single) Barclay 61.812 1973 need B Side

Metabolisme - Highway Over You / Tempus - 7" FLVM 4517 (1979) need non LP single A side - b-side on LP

Sanctus - Jane / Go To Hell, 7" Studio 35 BM 66 (1973) Go To Hell = nice heavy/brassy psych prog, need A Side

Véhicule Léger - Lame De Rasoir / Nez Rouge, 7" FLVM 4540 (1980) sounds like some sort of bizarre Zeuhl based on 30sec sample of Nez Rouge at

L'Association Des Musiciens Et Artistes De Touraine Presente "live in Tours 1977" (Disques Barrier 11001) 2LP 1977 - features 4 unknowns: Les Anges Noirs / Avalanche / Deep Feeeling Blues Band / Novelo "Tandava"

Terrain Vague - POUR QU'IL TE RESTE UN PEU DE MOI (SRC 543 954) 1981 French folk, could be interesting?

Jean-Louis Vincent - RÉSONANCES, LP Barclay 90.032 (1975) may just be folk, but has some interesting musicians on it


Are any of the following bands/soloists worth hearing?...

Belle De Jour - Sustain Love/Etoiles de la Nuit - is on the French new wave discography where it says "progresif"

Jazz Virus Quartet - GROUPIE DE SANSONNET - what type of jazz?

Rackham-Le-Rouge (R 8201) Alain Gautier & others, seems to be pop

Roger La Honte - SAME, LP KI Records RLH 1112 (1983) Uppsala related w/ Serge Korjanevski, Michel Laporte
